Overview

This tour forms part of our Scheduled & Overland tour collection.

Combine safari giants Botswana and Namibia with the thundering spectacle of Victoria Falls, and you have one of our most comprehensive overland safaris. Beginning and ending with bucket-lister Victoria Falls, the safari moves quickly into big game country, taking in the wild Caprivi Strip and game-rich Etosha National Park before arriving on the starkly beautiful Namibian coast where you’ll see tens of thousands of seals. The landscape changes as you head inland and explore the Namib and Kalahari deserts, equally fascinating at both ends of the scale: you’ll climb the towering sand dunes of Sossusvlei as well as learn how to track animals and make fire with San Bushmen.

From desert to delta, you then have an opportunity to discover the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta and home to a dazzling diversity of wildlife. Setting off in your mokoro (traditional canoe) you can look forward to experiencing the Delta the original way: camping on a remote island and exploring on foot with local guides. It’s a great chance to see wildlife, and the big game experience increases in intensity as you loop back to Victoria Falls. Botswana’s famous Chobe River is on the itinerary, one of the best places in Africa for a dry season (May to October) safari, but so are the Makgadikgadi Pans: a rarely-visited wilderness of Kalahari grassland and home to a dramatic zebra and migration in the rainy summer months (about November to February).

Running throughout the year, this safari is led by two professional guides and makes use of safari lodge accommodations throughout (including tented lodges) plus two nights of tented camp accommodation in the Okavango Delta. You have a private en suite toilet on every night of the tour. It’s a limited participation tour – you’ll help pack the truck in the morning and take turns washing up – all part of the adventure! There’s no upper age limit (over 65s will need a medical certificate stating their fitness for such a tour) and children between 12 and 17 are welcomed with an accompanying adult.
